‘I felt ashamed to walk’

LINK

You are the director of Kites. Why were you not walking the red carpet at Cannes with Hrithik Roshan, Rakesh Roshan and Barbara Mori?

It’s not that they didn’t want to take me. Rather I decided not to go. There were some personal reasons for not going there.

Why don’t you share the reasons with us?

I will walk the red carpet respectfully if and when my film is selected for competition. I really feel strongly about this. We Indians go and walk the red carpet and the media makes so much of brouhaha about which Bollywood is wearing what and all that but none of our films are inside. I think the last time was in 1994 when our film was shown in an auditorium in Cannes. I felt ashamed to walk there. Also, I wanted to make most of my Cannes visit by not only promoting Kites but by also meeting producers and financiers from different parts of the world. So, my priority was that… not to walk the red carpet. Continue reading

Akshay needs to start worrying!

There’s something about Akshay Kumar these days that has made many industry insiders cringe. His arrogance, they say, has cost producers a lot of money. And now, we are told, it is Akshay’s turn.

2009 may not be as blissful a year for Akshay Kumar as the previous two years. Ironically, it was also supposed to be the year he had most meticulously planned.

If insiders are to be believed, Akshay had all intentions of staying in the limelight throughout the year. As a result he had hoped to have at one film releasing at regular intervals.

With Chandni Chowk to China being the first big release of the year hit the screens in January, 8×10 Tasveer released in April – within about three months. It’s another matter that neither did well leaving Akshay Kumar somewhat in the lurch. Continue reading

Anupam Kher comes full circle

LINK

It’s the first time in the world,” emphasised Anupam Kher, as he celebrated his silver innings in the Hindi film industry. Indeed, watching Saaransh, the taut Mahesh Bhatt film which turned a non-entity from Shimla into a much-feted celebrity, at a ‘premiere’ 25 years after its release was a strange first-time experience.

It turned the word ‘premiere’ on its head — a premiere show is supposed to be the first public screening of a film. Everything about a premiere glitters — the screening of Saaransh was just the opposite. At 4 ’clock on a lazy Sunday afternoon, nothing can glitter. Even the print, exhausted with overuse, was faded and fatigued. It was a premiere where nostalgia overruled newness.

Anupam had gone to great pains to make it a memorable celebration. Apart from personal invitations, the staff at Metro was trained to welcome with a namaste, Barjatya-style. Few would remember that it was the traditional Tarachand Barjatya’s Rajshri banner that had backed Saaransh 25 years ago, a fact that Mahesh Bhatt appreciated at Anupam’s ‘premiere.’

“Can you imagine,” Bhatt held forth during interval, “that Tarachandji, such a traditional man, backed such a film 25 years ago? He’d asked me, young man, are you trying to say that rishis and sadhus are all fakes? I said, yes, sir. But he still backed me. Saaransh went totally against the Rajshri genre.” Twenty five years ago, the Rajshri banner was only known for small, cute films like Amol Palekar’s Chit Chor or Nadiya Ke Paar and an impressive name like Sooraj Barjatya was still to make his mark in Hindi cinema. A very young Sooraj was up there with dad Rajkumar Barjatya in old, nostalgia-filled photographs that were put up all over Metro. Continue reading

Blast from the past: Rosenbaum reviews The Nun.

THE NUN

**** (Masterpiece)

Directed by Jacques Rivette

Written by Jean Gruault and Rivette

With Anna Karina, Liselotte Pulver, Micheline Presle, Christianne Lenier, Jean Martin, and Francisco Rabal.

While it’s certainly regrettable that it’s taken Jacques Rivette’s controversial second feature 24 years to get distributed in this country in its complete and original form, there’s also something felicitous about its finally becoming available in an era when censorship of the arts is again on the warpath. Delays of various kinds have been central to the history of this potent if surprisingly chaste film, and there were comparable delays between the year Denis Diderot finished the novel that the film is based on (1760) and its actual appearance in print (1780-82 in serial form, and 1796–12 years after Diderot’s death–in the first printed edition).

Is SRK working with Murugadoss?

LINK

After teaming up with Aamir Khan in the hit movie “Ghajini”, Tamil director director Murugadoss now wants to work with Shah Rukh Khan
and says he is working on a story right now.

“Yes, I’m working on a subject. I had a meeting with Shah Rukh Khan once and I discussed a story with him. But frankly nothing has been finalised. We are still to meet many a times before a decision is taken,” Murugadoss told reporters Monday at the launch of new Kannada film “Suryakanthi”.

Murugadoss’ “Ghajini”, a remake of a Tamil hit, grossed about Rs.250 crore. Continue reading
